" ....I will say bluntly what religious leaders of all faiths should be saying loudly: God does not condemn gay and lesbian people. I don't care what you can quote from the Bible or the Quran or any scripture, the truth is the truth. Homosexuality is not a sin, it is not evil, it is not amoral, it is not against nature, it is not against God. Homosexuality is. Gay and lesbian people are. They are our brothers and our sisters, fellow children of God, made by God as they are. They have a place and a purpose in the world, bringing their unique balancing perspectives and energies and life into society.

All of my life I have had friends who are gay and lesbian. Some of the finest people I have been blessed to know are homosexual. I would go further still and say that some of the wisest and genuinely enlightened souls I have known are gay and lesbian...

"... I say without any hesitation that one can be homosexual and holy -- and without denying one's homosexuality. I have been lucky enough to know a few such elevated souls. But we don't have to reach for such heights, either; one can be profoundly good and moral, though still flawed and human, and be gay or lesbian. Why aren't more religious voices speaking this obvious truth?..."

I picked up a random book in the library a few weeks ago to escape the government leafblowers, who follow me around to distract, and I saw a lot of great things.

Saw some of the first evil beings, known as the muri, cognate to mara, noted blue-eyes.

When I put the book back, noticed the book next to it:

Jesus and Homosexuality.

Heh... I don't think you all will be getting to heaven, when you're too busy arguing over what to hate and what not to hate.

Until you realize to stop hating, you're just another something-percent hater of whatever-it-is you are lead to hate.

I will pray for you. Seriously.

The one clear message of the Bible about relationships is "Don't treat others like toilet paper.Treat others as cherished part of your family."

Amen.

I'm going to show you how hard it is these days to understand true filial nature in the media generations of the end times.

I mean, seriously, you READ what I'm saying, you can discern between right and wrong...

Seriously? You would let me go just like that? You wouldn't fight for it just because you're insulted for a moment? Insulting someone is easy. Connecting on the point of points takes effort of understanding. Come on man, fucking fight for it and say something. Tell me what you hate about me, and let me know you love me anyway.

I'm going to prove this point even if you fucking hate my guts for a split second. But in the meanwhile, it'll be like a Christian hates Rick & Morty for being science before realizing how fucking awesome Rick is.

Anyway, I came to you, for an important reason, but you aren't here to be some ego responding to LiveJournal Entries with Ego. PLEASE understand what is going on here beyond the bullshit, because I really do fucking love you.
